China: French and Chinese FMs exchange differences over N. Korean nuclear response

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian publicly disagreed with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi over the North Korean nuclear issue, in Beijing on Friday. There was a tense exchange between the two foreign ministers at a joint press conference in Diaoyutai State Guesthouse. Le Drian, who is on a four-day visit to Beijing, said that the Chinese should «push» the North Koreans into renouncing... Еще nuclear weapons. Wang countered that the Chinese have already proposed a ‘dual suspension’ plan, whereby Pyongnang would discontinue its nuclear programme and Washington would stop carrying out military exercises in the region. «If the conditions are not met, we have to create the proper conditions. Of course, if France has a better plan, we would like to hear it,» Wang Yi said. The US government has rejected what Wang called a “realistic and doable” solution to the North Korean crisis.
